GOP lawmaker says she disagrees with Trump’s tweet attacking witness

GOP intel member Rep. Elise Stefanik says she disagrees with Trump’s tweet attacking Marie Yovanovitch.

“I disagree with the tweet. I think Ambassador Yovanovitch is a public servant, like many of our public servants in the foreign service,” she said.

Some background: As Yovanovitch testified this morning, Trump tweeted attacks against her, saying, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.” He specifically pointed to her work in Somalia — which she described in her opening statement. (Remember: The White House said President Trump would watch Rep. Devin Nunes’ opening statement — but not any of the rest of today’s hearing.)
